The Blue Jays head into the off season with alot of questions about who will be at the corners in 2011. Unless they making a move, the challenge lies in finding full time at bats for Travis Snider and Jose B. Bautista is going to start, but where; is it rightfield or 3rd base. He is a superior rightfielder to anyone else they have. But the move to 3rd allows Fred Lewis to gain a fulltime spot. Edwin Encarnacion has shown an inability to make the routine plays at 3rd. The team needs better defence from that corner position. Lewis has shown himself to be a nice pick up, giving them a lead off hitter who can hit both lefthanded and righthanded pitching. The numerous holes that came with him from San Fran were overstated. Lewis has been a pleasant surprise but not an American League left fielder. He lacks the speed necessary for a player who doesn't hit for the power he should. His defence is suspect at best as well.
Alex Anthopoulos should find a suitor for EE and Travis Snider should be the everyday RF.
